About Malcolm Ferris Lay - Tea Consultant

Tea Consultancy Ltd is run by Malcolm Ferris - Lay, an experienced specialist in the tea industry for over 50 years,especially in tasting teas from all growths.

Having started his training with Twining, he went on to work with one of London's premier tea brokers until the demise of the London Tea Auctions.

Malcolm then joined the family tea business with 4 specialty tea and coffee shops together with a wholesale tea business supplying some of the leading names in the UK, Harrods, Boots, Harvey Nichols, The Savoy Hotel and the Lanesborough to name but a few.

Malcolm later joined what was probably the world`s finest family owned tea growers and packers Williamson and Magor as Sales and Marketing Director and later Managing Director.

Malcolm formed Tea Consultancy in 2009 to provide dedicated advice on the entire tea producing supply chain, from growing tea through to packaging and distribution..

Malcolm freely admits that he is passionate about tea; a passion he appears to share with a number of his family. Great Grandfather Bawtry Lay was a friend and crewmember on Sir Thomas Lipton's ill fated attempts to securing the Americas cup. Bawtry`s father, Jeremiah was a Master Mariner and brought teas back from the East on the huge sailing vessels which have a place in our history. On Malcolm's Mothers side Richard Ferris was a Tea Merchant in the 1800`s and latterly, Malcolm's brother Ian also ran a successful tea packing business.
